Pannonian Bird Experience
_ 3-day Birdfair, 9-day programme
_ During Spring Migration, the best time of year for birdwatching!
_ Programme of events organised by the Lake Neusiedl-Seewinkel National Park
Welcome to the “Pannonian Bird Experience”!
Lake Neusiedl, the most westerly steppeland lake in Europe, along with the saline ponds, meadows and pastures of the Seewinkel and the low-lying marshlands of the Hansag, forms a rich and varied breeding habitat, but also a prime stopover for passage migrants and an ideal wintering ground, in all 300+ bird species.
Since its foundation in 1993, the Lake Neusiedl-Seewinkel National Park has been the ideal starting point for birdwatching in the Western Pannonian region. Numerous nature reserves in the neighbouring areas of Hungary and Slovakia are also within easy reach, and nowadays there are no border controls!
The aim of the Pannonian Bird Experience is to introduce visitors to the most beautiful areas of the region, offer information on bird conservation and display the latest products for birdwatchers, all at the best time of year!
